- Thomas Frank’s Brentford managed a 2-0 win away at struggling Southampton in their most recent outing during the midweek. The Bees are pushing for European qualification and aren’t, remarkably, out of the hunt for an unlikely top four finish.
- Vitaly Janelt suffered an injury against Southampton and will not recover in time for this fixture, which should see Josh Dasilva come into midfield.
- Leicester City are in trouble but, given comments from the manager and several players, they don’t seem to realise the extent of their trouble. The Foxes’ 3-1 defeat at home to Chelsea last weekend means they have suffered four successive defeats and begin this weekend’s round of fixtures sitting outside of the bottom three on goal difference.
- James Maddison has a minor knock but looks likely to shake it off but Wout Faes is suspended after being sent off for two bookable offences against Chelsea.

The home team had their 14 match unbeaten run of form ended by struggling Everton at Goodison Park last weekend. Brentford bounced back with their aforementioned win at St Mary’s against Southampton and with a striker in Ivan Toney boosted by a return to the England squad this week, The Bees are pushing for a European qualification spot. They now face a Leicester City side that appear to be ignoring the perilous situation they find themselves in. The visitors have conceded a staggering 49 goals in their 26 games. Given the form and performances of the two teams, the hosts appear certain victors.
TIP: BRENTFORD TO WIN
